RATINGS

90The Wine Advocate

...cuts a deeper, broader swath across the palate. It exhibits plenty of apple blossom and citrus oil as well as hints of mango and pineapple. It is rich, full-bodied, clean and pure, with very discreet oak usage...builds incrementally and finishes with delicious acidity and length...impressive.

PRODUCER

Tamber Bey

Tamber Bey Vineyards was founded in 1999, when Barry Waitte purchased a 60-acre vineyard in Yountville and 11 acres in the Oakville appellation. For several years Waitte called his estate the Two Rivers Vineyard, then changed it to Deux Chevaux. In 2000 he hired winemaker Thomas Rivers Brown and changed the name of the company a few years later to Tamber Bey Vineyards. Today the winemaker is Frederic Delivert. The estate also includes an equestrian facility. Tamber Bey makes Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Bordeaux blends, as well as Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

REGION

United States, California, Napa Valley, Yountville

Yountville AVA is just west of Stags Leap and north of Oak Knoll. It is centered around the town of Yountville, named for George Yountville, who planted the area’s first vineyard in 1836. The district received appellation status in 1999 and it includes 4,000 vineyard acres. It is known for tannic Cabernet Sauvignon that has a reputation for aging well. Dominus Estate, formerly Napanook Vineyard, is one of the most prestigious producers in Yountville, and in all of Napa Valley.

TYPE

White Wine, Chardonnay

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
